I have seen several branches that failed due in part to included forks - no
wind just dropped off.  So the question is - how much do the factors
involved in SBD affect limbs like these.  Do we see a failure like this and
say - "included, weak fork" but dismiss the possibility of a combination of
factors?  Are structurally weak forks more susceptible to failure in hot dry
